This post is about the Not So Secret Key to Success… Action.
Action makes all the difference between where you are now and where you want to be. Once you have a goal or vision in mind, you must put corresponding action in place. Having a goal but no action is like being thirty and having access to clean water but not drinking it. You’ll stay thirsty until you drink.
As the Nike slogan says, “Just Do It.”
I know I have been guilty of over-planning or waiting until the “right” time or the “perfect” moment. What I have learned is waiting for perfection is counterproductive. Waiting got me nowhere except for frustrated. I have since learned to do whatever I can do, to the best of my ability, in the present moment. What I do maybe imperfect but its better than nothing at all.
To reiterate a statement from post “Be Better, Do Better”: … perfection in this world is flawed; due to the fact that all human beings are flawed.
So be not afraid to do the thing you have been dying to do, as long as its not hurting anyone.
It’s okay to be afraid. It’s okay not to know everything or what will happen. That’s what faith and belief is all about, right?
The anxiety of the unknown will dissipate as you move and do. Just take a deep breath and go for it.
P.S. Be encouraged: You can do it.
P.S.S. I want to hear from you. Be honest: What action have you been putting off? What dream have you been pushing aside? Where do you see yourself shutting down but want to see progression?
